Filming is due to get underway this year with plot details being kept under wraps. Rising actress Sharvari (Bunty Aur Babli 2) will also play an agent.

The movie will be the seventh film in the very lucrative YRF Spy Universe after Ek Tha Tiger, Tiger Zinda Hai, War, Pathaan, Tiger 3, and War 2.

Deol made waves as the villain opposite Ranbir Kapoor and Anil Kapoor in recent action movie Animal with his performance garnering a Filmfare Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. His casting in the YRF Spy project means he will be pitting his wits against husband and wife Ranbir Kapoor and Bhatt in successive films.

Previous credits include series Aashram and movies such as Love Hostel, Bichoo, Badal, and his breakout debut Barsaat, which won him a Filmfare for Best Male Debut.
